The latest addition to my website is Camil Petrescu‘s Ultima noapte de dragoste, întâia noapte de război [The Last Night of Love, the First Night of War]. This is a love story and a war story. Stefan Gheorghidiu meets a woman at university. They fall in love and get married. At first all goes well but then he starts to have suspicions that she is being unfaithful to him. They separate, get back together and separate again. They argue. He tries to make her jealous by being seen with another woman. However, it is August 1916. Romania has remained neutral in World War I but it now seems that it is likely to side with Allies. When he is called up, he is worried that she will have further opportunities to be unfaithful. However, he has to fight and Petrescu shows us that Romania was totally unprepared for a war and that love and war do not go hand in hand. This is a classic of Romanian literature but though it has been translated into seven languages, English is not one of them.
